KNO W NOTHINGISMb REPUDIATED.
With the solitary exception of Kentucky,
where, in its chief olty, ruflanism had fh11
play, and unrestrained license, not a solita
ry slave state, has lent its countenance or
support to the Know Nothing heresy, and
even in Kentucky, were the abolition vote
of that commonwealth subtracted from the
yhole vote cast in her state election, would
her political aflkir be in their present con.
dition. Like ourselves, in the larger towns
of Kentucky; particularly upon the Ohio
river, a large portion of their populption
consists of persoedns inimical to slavery, eve.
ry man of whom voted the know nothing
ticket just as they did in New Orleans on
the Mth day of this month.
~stimating this vote 'at one thousand,
and allowing one.tliousand more for votes
fraudulently cast, the actual know nothing
strength here, that is, of enrolled nenlbers
and sympathizers, does not exceed three
thousand votes. If five hundred sympa
thizers be deducted from these, there will
remain twenty-five lfundred, which exactly
tallies with their strength, as reported to us
from the muster rolls of the order elf. A
large proportion of these twent lve hun
dred consiste of mere inexperienced youth,
persons whose minds are easily dazzled by
mystery and inflammatory declarations of
patriotism, and who, although not disposed
naturally to be mischievous, in the hands,
or under the tuition of designing bad men,
are easlly led into the commission of irregu
larities or breaches of the laws. Among
the creole population of the Second district,
chiefly did the new heresy find the largest
support, probably, because in that section of
the city was disgust with the management
of the democratic party for a few years
past, most general and deep. seated.
So far, however, as our personal enqui
ries have extended, we have been unable, in
apy single instance, to identify young or
old of what is called the " ancient popu.
lation," with any irregularity or, outrage
at the polls, and at the two precincts in the
second district where ruffianism had license
during the day of election, it is a noticea
ble and significant fact that the common
council took the precaution to appoint
know nothing inspectors there, wholly un
connected by origin, sentiment, or sympa
thy with the creole population of the Dis
A Aln residence, and intimate identifi
cation with the interests and people of the
second district, made us anxious to remove
erroneous impressions which the election of
the fifth instant appears to have created in
the minds of many of our up-town readers,
and we are most happy to be able to do so
after the most careful enquiry and investi
In Louisiana, therefore, all apprehensions
of the northern heresy becoming rooted
in the soil may be dismissed; and friends at
a distance who may have indulged auxieo
ties and misgivings ou'this point, may, we
assure them, henceforth, assert that Know
Noth tngism in Louisiana has no more chance
of success than it has in any other of our
sister slave-holding communities. The elec
tion even in this city establishes beyond
cdntrovertibility its weakness; for even
with inspectors of election belonging to
the order, bowie knives and pistols to in
timidate peaceful voters, a complete demor
alization of the police for party purposes,
and the employment of ruffians from other
cities to vote and murder hero, it required
the destruction of two ballot boxes in dem
ocratic precincts to secure them oven an ap
pearance of success.
Abolitionism and hostility to popery
may secure it in some of the northern states
a little longer tenure of vitality; but as a
political element, capable of accomplishing
any important object, Know Nothingism
may be regarded as repudiated and extinct
in every southern state.--True D)ella.
FoU.RT DEoREE OP KNow NOTIIINGTSM.
-As we have already published the obliga
tions and chargcs of the three degrees of
Know nothingism we now copy from an
exchange some particulars of the fourth:
Completely accessible, every member of
the Order is eligible to it, and on his own
motion. It respects not dignity, and will
welcome a brother of the first degree as
gladly s one of the third. "Accommoda
ting itself to the social feeling, it can either
be taken singly or by squads. Free as uir
it is attainable by day or by night, at reg
ular sessions or the irregular, at any meet
ing or at no meeting. Wisest, best, and
most profitable of all the degrees, the fourth
is taken by letter missive, substantially in

now passing through a severe and Itt+la
ordeal, contending with an enemy th.

subtle in its approach, noiseless in its foot
steps, and swift in its progress; in its traee
sitory pause exerting an influence upon the
morals, religion, and politics of. the coun

the poisonous emission of the Upass tree4
upon all animal life. But democracy
heretofore passed similar ordeals- It
will, as I confidently believe, asltuas dope
on former occasions, rise from the prempnt
contest purer and stronger than at any
former period of our country's history,-
T'he people have heard the struggle that
has been going on; they have been aroused
to a sense of the great danger that sur
rounds and threatens our institutions; they
are in their might coming up to the rescue,
and will save the country and preeerve, the
constitution from a practical violation of
some of its most essential provisions. De
mnocracy knows, and it is to be expected,
too, that every plan, effort, and underta
king that has a tendency to improve and
to elevate the great mass of the people, is
naturally inclined to excite the good will
and opposition to those iq possession of
considrable extra learning, wealth and
power, or those who contend for undue ad
vantages over their fellow men. It is im
portunt, therefore, always to bear in mind,
that whatever tends substantially to benefit
the common people will be generally view
ed with hlostility by the pseudo aristocracy
of thie country. Hence, genuluoe Christian
ity and democracy both originate with,
and have mainly been supported by men
of humble origin, circumsta gs, and situs
tions, whom those puffed W' with undue
wealth, assumed learning, power, rank and
authority, generally profess to despise for
their low birth, poverty and ignorance.
Anything which has a 'tendency to pro
mote genuine civilization, Christianity, and
democracy, is most in acc6rdance with the
interests and feelings of the mass of the
people. We must therefore look to them
chiefly for an impulse or truesenseof equal
justice and fellow-feelings, and for whater
or imports a common good, or the promo.
tion of justice, humanity, prosperity, and
happincss to mankind in general.
Virtue and intelligence, talent and gen
uine learning, honest industry, economy
and real merit, combined with a heart that
loves its kind, of whatever clime, tongue,
or condition, constitute the only aristocra
cy that can ever command and receive the
only respect and admiration of the Ameri
can people. An aristocracy likg this has
my respect. and no other has. It is prin
ciples and sentiments like these which ensa
ble the patriot and philanthropist to ex
claim, in sincerity and truth; that the world
is my home, and that every honest man is
